One of my mares very kindly likes to show almost textbook udder growth:

It's missing one pic, the next day she foaled and her udder did one final swell where it was hard and hot to the touch.

Just looking through your photos again and just wanted to check, is that normal for that amount of blood to be coming out? Just want to know so I don't freak if I see it happening. :)

Yes, lots of times the mare may have a very slight tear which will heal on its own -- and you'll see the foal's legs covered with blood.  Not to worry!!  Remember -- it's like pushing a train through a straw!  LOL

This sounds like a man describing the passing of a kidney stone.

LOL.  Actually, I think it's the way I described the birth process for my twin sons to someone after pushing the "2 cars" through!

Thank you Joanne for sharing both of these videos of Diva's birthing.  We were all so happy when baby moved out of the breech position, and I think this is great for people to see that you can gently reach in and help get baby's two feet up, even if they do not appear right away.  It's so much easier on the mare and baby!

 

 

So here are two videos of the same birth. One done by one of the experts at Mare Stare "Cherie", and the other (with sound) done by my husband on his iPhone. As a background, Diva was breach up until a week before foaling when she turned. The head was there at birthing, but I had to go in and get the two feet, which you can see me doing on the silent film, the sound one my husband started a bit later when I had the feet and was starting to gently pull. This was a maiden mare and I did not want her to tear, and she was not stretched as much as I would have liked. You will see on Cherie's video that I was letting the mare's contractions push the foal out as much as possible, and was just guiding the foal, once the head was out. I was behind the mare when the water broke and showed no reaction. That made me laugh when I saw the video as I was just soaked, but so focused on the birth that I did not react.

Here's a video from Mandy's foaling 5/2/13...... The foal presented in normal position even with a normal position you can see still some help might be needed. The foal had his front legs crossed and his hips were out a bit just enough to stop the progress in the hip area so some front leg uncrossing and some pulling to the left and right unlodged the hip issue....also with manipulation of the head where it's the widest saved the mare from tearing, as you can see it was a tight fit......hope this video will shed some light even though the presentation of the foal was normal some human help was needed.....

I want to thank all of you for such informative videos. I am a newcomer to Miniature Horses and Horses in General. I recently moved to the country (Central Valley California) and There are a few farms in town that have Mini horses. They are gorgoues. In the future I plan to buy property and a mini horse or two.  These were awesome videos and Im so grateful. I want to let you know your passion, and compassion really inspires me to become a  part of the Mini horse community.
